What is bladder diverticulum?

Bladder diverticula is a condition in which an outpouching or a pocket forms in the bladder wall. A person may be either born with a bladder diverticulum or acquire it later in their life. This condition may be associated with urinary tract infections, difficulty voiding or abdominal fullness.
